Valuable Proverbs From Walk in the Word Program (revised and corrected)

Proverbs for Parenting
19:18 (NIV) Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death.
22:15 (NIV) Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away.
23:13-14 (NIV) Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish them with the rod, they will not die. Punish them with the rod and save them from death.
29:15 (NIV) A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom, but a child left undisciplined disgraces its mother.
29:17 (NIV) Discipline your children, and they will give you peace; they will bring you the delights you desire.
1:8-9 (HCSB) Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction, and don’t reject your mother’s teaching, for they will be a garland of grace on your head and a gold chain around your neck.
2:1-2 (HCSB) My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,
listening closely to wisdom and directing your heart to understanding;
13:1 (HCSB) A wise son responds to his father’s discipline, but a mocker doesn’t listen to rebuke.
29:15-19 A rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a youth left to himself is a disgrace to his mother. When the wicked increase, rebellion increases, but the righteous will see their downfall. Discipline your son, and it will bring you peace of mind
and give you delight. Without revelation people run wild, but one who listens to instruction will be happy. A slave cannot be disciplined by words; though he understands, he doesn’t respond.
28:23 (HCSB) One who rebukes a person will later find more favor than one who flatters with his tongue.
13:24 (HCSB) The one who will not use the rod hates his son, but the one who loves him disciplines him diligently.
10:1 (HCSB) A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son, heartache to his mother.
17:25 (HCSB) A foolish son is grief to his father and bitterness to the one who bore him.
23:24-25 (HCSB) The father of a righteous son will rejoice greatly, and one who fathers a wise son will delight in him. Let your father and mother have joy, and let her who gave birth to you rejoice.
22:6 (HCSB) Teach a youth about the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
29:17 (HCSB) Discipline your son, and it will bring you peace of mind and give you delight.
